About Carolyn

The South has always been home to me since I was born and raised in Charlottesville, Virginia and educated in North Carolina.  And yes, there is such a thing as southern hospitality!  I received a B.S. in Interior Design from Meredith College in Raleigh and owned my design firm – Hallett House Interiors – for ten years.  Houses have always been a focus for me, too, since my husband and I have renovated 2 houses and built 3 houses during our marriage.  I think my education and experience gives me the opportunity to bring a unique perspective to home buying and selling because I can always see possibilities in houses that perhaps others cannot. Real estate is my passion; being a real estate broker lets me help buyers turn houses into homes, and help sellers market their homes to advantage to get them sold.

When I do have free time, I spend it with family, friends and my golden retriever rescue Piper; and enjoy traveling, reading, cooking, and entertaining. 

I am a licensed North Carolina real estate Broker dedicated to helping each of my buyer clients find his/her new home here in the Pinehurst-Southern Pines area; or assisting my seller clients in moving to the next phase of their life whether it be upsizing because of additional family, downsizing as an empty nester or relocating due to career changes. Currently, one of my special joys is working with our military families assigned to Ft. Bragg because so many of them are choosing to move to Pinehurst and Southern Pines.  The Sandhills of Moore County is a truly beautiful area I’ve been proud to call home for the past 19 years. My in-depth knowledge of my home area enables me to provide information on neighborhoods, schools, medical facilities, churches, as well as home-related services such as mortgages, home inspections, and insurance.

The hallmark of my real estate business is exceptional service and knowledge:  to ensure each of my clients enjoys a pleasurable, worry-free real estate experience; and to ensure buyers and sellers know that they are working with a trusted and knowledgeable professional.

Read what Carolyn’s buyers and sellers say about working with her!

“We were charmed by Carolyn: she is clearly a caring professional. She was there for us through every aspect of our house hunt. It was apparent to us that her main focus was on helping us find the perfect house for our needs. Her paperwork and attention to details were always spot on. She is also a wealth of information regarding local trades people and was always happy to share contact information or make a call on our behalf. The closing went smoothly and we are now very happy in our new home.”

Sue & Paul

“Carolyn goes above and beyond in all areas to make the process of finding and buying a home as simple as possible. Through working with Carolyn we not only found a fantastic Realtor but a great friend.”


“Carolyn is an absolute joy to work with. She has helped us buy and sell in the Sandhills the past few years and does everything in her power to help reach the best outcome for us. Carolyn is well-connected in the area and is a wealth of knowledge when it comes to quality tradesmen, service providers, and all that is involved in buying and selling. In my past real estate experience, I was spending my time setting up appointments and working around my schedule to meet with inspectors and workers but with Carolyn, she was always one step ahead of me—making arrangements and meeting appointments if I couldn’t. Carolyn is a gem who in the process of being our realtor, has become a friend. We are so fortunate to have been connected with her! Thank you so much for all you do, Carolyn!”
